I saw this recently on Inside Edition.
I received this unsolicited text recently. All I can do is shake my head. It should be “whose.”
I took these from a menu at a restaurant in Sedona, Arizona. I typically give a little more grace to restaurants where the owners may not use English as their first language, but in this case, they got in right in other places.
A reader sent this to me. This sign has been in her parking garage for months and she finally took a picture of it for us.
It’s time for “Confusing Words of the Week” where I take a set of two or three words that get confused and give you definitions and try to give you a memory trick to help you remember when to use which word. If you have words that confuse you, use the Ask PTB tab on the website or send an email to email@example.com and they may appear here soon!
This week’s words are:
- Healthful – promoting health (e.g., a healthful food)
- Healthy – being in good health (e.g., a healthy person)
- Healthful – Things that promote good health are full of health
- Healthy – Things alreadY in good health are healthy
A friend sent this to me from a convention. Obviously the PR Department needs to proofread!
